Halloween Tunes

General Discussion
So, I'm driving the van shuttle for a week and making a playlist of Halloween tunes. I've got to listen to it all day, three days in a row, so trying to get a couple hours of songs here. Looking for suggestions. Here's the list so far.

"Monster Mash" and "The Witch Doctor"
"Theme from Twilight Zone"
"Theme from The Adams Family"
"Theme fromThe Munsters"
"Nature Trail to Hell" by Weird Al
"Godzilla" "Don't Fear the Reaper" "Black Blade" "Harvester of Eyes" and well... pretty much half of the songs Blue Oyster Cult ever wrote.
"Frankenstein" by the Edgar Winter Group
"The Rocky Horror Picture Show" Entire Album
"Little Ghost" by White Stripes.
"Demon Kitty Rag" by Katznjammer
"Vampire" by Solace and Fury
"Superstition" both by Stevie Womder and Stevie Ray Vaughn
"Werewolves of London" by Warren Zevon
"Tocatta and Fuge in D Minor" By the London Orchestra
"Carmina Burana" by Trans-Siberian Orchestra
"Hell" by Squirrel Nut Zippers
"Dead Man's Party" by Oingo Boingo
"Scooby-Doo Theme" by Matthew Sweet
"Spooky Scary Skeletons" by Andrew Gold

You cannot have a complete list of Halloween songs without Spooky Scary Skeletons!

Also, the Hocus Pocus version of I Put A Spell On You.

Put that guitar solo from "Dead Man" on there, that reverb will scare anyone. Freaky Neil Young.
Napstablook's "Spookwave" CD.

Okay. That does seem like a must have....
But is there a version that isn't an hour long?

Have to have the Halloween theme song from the original movie.

Normal lengths this time!
"Nightmare on my street" By DJ Jazzy Jeff and the Fresh Prince
Note: These are actual songs, not made specifically as a holiday gimmick, may or may not fit in depending on how you're setting things up.

Kitty in a Casket - Lurking in the Dark

The Creepshow - Zombies Ate Her Brain
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RApYZZTcCNU

If either of those seem appropriate you might be able to dig around and find others from them.

There's also this, It's almost assuredly not appropriate for what you're doing, but it has a sort of spooky vibe that I'd include if it was just for me:
Puscifer - Rev 22:20
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Z4d4yB-cm6E
From The Nightmare Before Christmas, "This is Halloween"
https://youtu.be/pmKE1Kd3xco

I prefer the Marilyn Manson version of the above song, but not all do:

Then of course, there's "Thriller" by Michael Jackson:

Ghostbusters:

Wumpscut - Mother
Just about anything from White Zombie can be made to work.

If not for the single closing line I'd strongly recommend Boogie Monster by Gnarls Barkley (I'd give it a shot anyway).

Also, apt for a van tour, Highway to Hell by AC/DC.

Bad Moon Rising by Creedence Clearwater Revival.

Edit:
And if you want to step outside the norm and go for some creepy atmospherics, Lorn has a number of good options including Diamond, and Bury your Brother. Tracks like Debris, Ghosst(s) and No Safety on a Body could have a place as well.
